Well now.. I figured it was about high time I introduced you to Irish, only fitting really as my blog name dictates that I ought to share the things I am most fond of - I can hear you throwing up in your mouths you know..
So yeah.. he's a good egg and I'm very thankful to have him around, he's bonkers just like me - for all of you who wonder why I call him Irish - funnily enough it is because he is Irish! I jest! (partially) It's because I was so worried about pronouncing his name wrong I just called him 'Irish' when talking to my friends and family and it's kinda just stuck (like poo on a stick). Off to a bit of a strange start but I am going to blame fatigue, despite being ever so weary after a solid few hours of painting I am extremely thankful for:
copper clocks :: my friend bought me a gorgeous copper clock from Tiger yesterday to say thank you for helping her with painting for an event.. funny thing was, I had come home with the exact same clock for myself about an hour before - I am thankful that my friend knows me so well!
photo booths :: I have been meaning to go to one for such a long time, I just love the novelty of having a printed strip of photos - I headed down to Rough Trade on brick lane on Sunday afternoon with Irish and we decided that as there aren't any photos of us.. why the hell not?! I've been toying with the idea of taking one Photo Booth photo a month - is that too often to notice any changes?
keeping my nerve :: yesterday I went head to head with Martin Lewis (yes the same one from the tv/radio), I don't know how I managed it but I kept my nerve and he seemed to take on board my opinions which I think makes a great editor in chief.
taking on more :: I like taking on more work - I just want to show what I'm able to do and I'm extremely thankful that I am being given a chance to do so!
weekend adventures :: I did a whole lotta walking and a whole lotta eating this weekend - Irish's first visit to my house in the city. My favourite part was going to the science museum and him explaining how everything worked.. followed by a 3D iMAX film of the universe which made me feel positively insignificant, in a good way.
Sorry if this has been a little soppy, countered by the anti-emotional mentions of excrement and a slightly ferrel and rambling tone (it's the fatigue!) but this is a week I am extremely thankful for being happy, healthy and I having a lovely bunch of friends and family. What are you all thankful for?
